This is a full year course that is designed to develop year 13 students in Te Reo Māori to enable them to build upon the language skills developed at year 12. Level 3 Te Reo Māori focuses on learning key Te Reo Māori skill such as whakarongo (listening), kōrero (speaking), tuhituhi (writing) and pānui (reading). The teaching environment will be bilingual. 

During this year students will be challenged to use Te Reo Māori and practice tikanga Māori every day in, and out of class. They will explore significant national and international kaupapa, examining similarities and differences. These kaupapa will then be incorporated into their Internal Achievement Standards - this is also part of our annual haerenga (trip) where our senior class travels to a different iwi to learn the history and mita (dialect).

Students will be working toward a level where they can gain Excellence in Te Reo Māori at Level 3. Students will learn and practice oral, written and visual forms of Te Reo Māori. 

Te Reo Māori 300 would suit a student with a strong interest in Te Ao Māori (the Māori world). 

Te Reo Māori is also a University approved subject.
